Diner Reviews
  • "Although there is music and conversation at the Capitol Grille people can hear one another at the table. The conversation isn't lost in over amplified music and raucous diners."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The generous pour for 25.00 to try all the featured wines was the highlite to me. Food is solid but at the end of the day I can feed my family for 2 weeks on what a meal costs there."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "We ate lobster, oysters and halibut of superb quality in this chain resto in a shopping mall in Paramus. The halibut was exceptional-- I'd not eaten a fresher halibut since a friend shared his freshly caught fish. If you're catching a plane at LaGuardia or even JFK, and need a dressy place nearby to entertain friends/family, this place is great. Super-waiter Jesse made the experience even better."

  • "Food was excellent and service was even better. Was very impressed with their Lobster Bisque and thought my steak was cooked to perfection. The waiter was extremely attentive and accommodating. I look forward to eating there again and will certainly ask for the same waiter."

  • "I've dined at Capital Grilles for years and I have never once been disappointed. From the knowledgeable staff, to the amazing service and the incredible menu... It is always a great experience. Our server on this day was pretty awesome and the food was as usual on point. You will be glad that you made the choice to fine here."

  • "The service was excellent. The waiter knew exactly how to split the food due to the big party we have and everyone in the party wanted to share food. The only bad review is the lobster mac and cheese. That dish was really salty that it so hard to eat it. However, the waitress saw it and remove it from our bill. So, the service is great."

  • "Made a reservation for 8 people for a birthdau celebration.Not only were we seated immediately but put in our own private room. Our server was very welcoming and very attentive to our dining needs. The wine list was impressive and the food was perfection."

  • "Not the same as the Capital Grilles in the city. Different owners? Weird tomato sauce like "au jour" came with the steaks that made them taste horrible. Filet mignon was ok but the sirloin had a worse half than the first few bites. Server did us a favor on the tab but that's not worth the effort and unfortunate expectations that weren't met."

  • "As a huge fan of the River Palm, I rarely like other steak houses . This was an exception. Located at the biggest mall in NJ, this is a welcome escape from burgers and mediocre chains . An execellent endless pour program allowed us to try 7 very good wines for 25 ! Adequate kids menu ( though they need plastic cups), fresh seafood, perfectly cooked steak and impeccable service . Thanks to the management for understanding when my son had a fit at the table . Totally unusual for him but oh so embarrassing . I would love to return ( if welcomed lol.)"

  • "Took my husband and two "tween" kids for my husband's birthday. We reserved on Open Table and were shown to our table on time. Our server (Jesse) was attentive and pleasant. The kids shared two petite filet mignons and two lobster tails. They were thrilled and cleaned their plates. My husband had a 3 lb lobster and was in heaven. I tried a halibut special over steamed spinach and devoured it all (I rarely do). We skipped dessert as the menu was not exciting to us but we were stuffed anyway. Great place for dates and business meetings ."

  • "My husband & I brought our 3 kids here for my husband and son's 21st birthday. It was a Sunday 6pm reservation and they weren't too busy. We ordered calamari, porterhouse steak, delmonico steak, sea bass, truffle fries....all the dishes were amazing. Service was excellent, we were treated like royalty. They included personalized birthday cards and at the end of our dinner, they came out with 2 complimentary desserts. We will be coming back very soon!"

  • "The food was very good, but for the prices, I was expecting something different. We were seated in a booth near the bar area. I would have preferred a table, but had never been there before so did not know what to request. I felt that our server was not overly thrilled with serving us. It was much louder than I had imagined and not the atmosphere I was looking for."

  • "the food was amazing, as was expected. the service was great too. i asked for a wine recommendation and my server very promptly offered one that was mid-range as far as the price goes, as opposed to an expensive glass. i was slightly disappointed though when we asked to take home one of our appetizers, they said OK, but then they forgot when we brought the rest of our food home. just a bit disappointed."

  • "To be perfectly honest, I was quite disappointed . The ambiance was good, the service wonderful, but my shopped shrimp salad was rather mediocre , and I expected more. It was rather ordinary d this is a pricy place, so I guess I expected it to be more special, food wise. Do t think I'll go again anytime soon. Sorry. The good news is that our server was fantastic."

  • "We showed up and were seated promptly. When we were sat at our table, the table was decorated with rose petals, heart confetti, and a card that read Happy Anniversary. Nice touch. Both my husband and i had the bone-on filet, which was excellent. the server was attentive and professional. The sides were just o.k. The creamed corn tasted like plain creamed corn with some chopped bacon tossed into it. The potatoes au gratin were overcooked. Then lastly the parmesan truffle fries were over seasoned with truffle oil. Otherwise the drinks and wine were delicious. The steak was very tender and well seasoned, which made the whole meal salvageable for me. The just need to step up their sides to compliment their excellent steaks."

  • "We dined here on Sunday, June 15th for Fathers Day. I had the filet mignon, 10oz. And my husband had the porticinni rubbed steak(not sure if I spelled that correctly). Both of our dishes were very, very good. Our 9 yr old son had a burger which he said on a scale from 1 to 10 was an 11! Service was excellent. A great Fathers Day . We will dine here again."

  • "Capital Grille in Paramus is a favorite of mine. I booked thru Open Table and included a note and request to the restaurant. I was surprised by the special birthday decorations, card and dessert arranged by the restaurant. More than I asked for. Wonderful surprise and quiet fuss for us to enjoy. As always the food was delicious."

  • "Every time we come to the Capital Grille-it gets better and better. We arrive for a special birthday celebration and were taken to the requested "private room". We were a party of 9 people. It made the experience so much nicer. We were able to shut the door and hear each other speak. The restaurant is usually a bit noisy, but don't let that deter you. The food and service are second to none. My favorite is the Lobster Mac N Cheese. Yum!"

  • "I have been dining at Capital Grille for a couple of years now and at various locations on the east coast. From the moment you leave your car (complimentary valet) and all throughout your visit you will be treated like a special customer. The attentive service and attention to detail during your meal is always present. For special occasions the Grille will help you celebrate by decorating your table with confetti and an appropriate card will be left on the table. They will even add in a special "dessert" to guarantee that your event will be memorable, so make sure to call ahead and reserve and let them know of your occasion."

Steak is melt in your mouth delicious as are the accompaniments and dessert. Service is unobtrusive and wonderful. Table was decorated with glitter and a birthday card was waiting for our son who was greeted warmly. Great place to be made feel "special"!"

Took another 15 mins to tell us that they did not have the bottle of wine we wanted. Overall I was not satisfied with my experience. I do not recommend this restaurant. "
